I grew up going to the same church with my family but ever since I've lived on my own, I haven't been to church on a regular basis and it's only because I want to feel completely comfortable where I'm at. That usually means that people know my name and ask how things are going instead of just sitting down and leavingwithout talking to anyone because I don't know anyone! It's one of those catch 22's... I need to start going to some new churches and see what they're like. The problem I have is that I'm avoiding doing it because I don't know anyone to break the ice and introduce me to people so I can feel comfortable. We have some mega churches around here with really wonderful music but I just don't like how I can't hear myself sing (it's like concert level music or something!) and I don't know anyone. I get self-conscious sometimes if I don't have anyone to talk to. Going to church is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable so I want to hear how you chose your church to help motivate me to get out the door on Sundays! I listen to Christian music and read Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyers' emails/newsletter but I'm really craving that sense of belonging!
